To appreciate and understand the modern Jack Russell Terrier temperament, it is essential to bear in mind that he was originally bred to be fearless, alert, tireless, and aggressive in the chase.  The dog that has evolved into today's house pet still retains these traits, which when properly channeled, make him an extremely loyal, protective, and lively companion.

The JRT is his own "person" -a true and independent spirit capable of living life to the fullest, with joy, exuberance, and a zest few canines can match.  When he and his human master function as a team, the bond between them is a privilege.  But like all good things, it takes time, patience, and a  lot of love to get there.  Once you do, you won't find a better life companion than your Jack!
